Iran Mocks Washington "Pirates Of The Caribbean" For Selling Seized Fuel For $40 Million

Not for the first time Iran has slammed the United States as "the pirates of the Caribbean" after the Department of Justice announcement late last week boasting that 1.1 million barrels in petroleum recently seized from four Iranian tankers bound for Venezuela were sold for $40 million.

The DOJ had alleged that Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) operatives were behind the clandestine shipments of fuel and weapons meant to circumvent sanctions. "We estimate that in excess of $40 million will be recouped by the United States related to the sale of petroleum from those four vessels," acting US attorney for the District of Columbia Michael Sherwin the told reporters last week.

In response Iran’s Foreign Ministry Spokesman Saeed Khatibzadeh tweeted: "The Pirates of the Caribbean openly boasting about their booty..." And he added: "No one civilized brags [about] stealing."
